We still have spots available for Anne's Stamped Mokume Gane Pendant live online workshop in March but March 5th is the deadline to order your kit for U.S. shipping (March 12th for local pick ups). This is a great opportunity to create - from start to finish - a beautiful mokume gane pendant to wear or give as a special gift. It's also a rare chance to get your hands on one of Anne's exclusive mokume blanks in a color combo she usually reserves for her own works - silver/copper/brass. These photos are from her previous class last year. Keep in mind that you also get a handsome Certificate of Completion and a ticket for our famous end-of-class raffle where we give away gift certificates and sometimes...mokume goodies!

The past two days have been great fun hosting a group of 15 students learning mokume gane chisel patterning. Jewelry metals instructor Anne Wolf totally updated this class with new techniques and high-res video and the quality really showed. Plus it was just so much fun with students in attendance from California to Alaska to Washington DC and points in between. We even had the fabulous Francesca Urciuoli Zooming in from Berlin. The students shared a lot of great info (like using old hex keys for chisel stock) and fun photos (MKaye bundled up for a snowy outdoor lunch), but mostly we all enjoyed learning about patterning mokume from Anne...and each other. The work speaks for itself, here are just a few of the pieces created.
Hello and Happy New Year! I am excited to announce that I'll be providing online class hosting for Bette's upcoming online workshop Making Magic with Steel and Silver online January 11th through 15th. As Bette describes on her website: "We are excited to offer an online workshop packed with information, hands-on skills and fun. A big focus is on the design aspect of silver and steel jewelry, learning to use silver elements to guide design. You’ll have time to create a mixed metals steel and reticulated silver cuff plus at least one other piece of your own design. You’ll learn to work with mild steel sheet and wire, fuse silver to steel, reticulate silver to create flowing ridges and valleys and much more. Who knew that silver foil could be bonded beautifully to steel producing an amazing contrast between the two metals?" Get the full class description and registration info at StudioMigoto.com.
